Glenn is digging graves, possibly Patrick’s grave from the Harry Potter glasses that is beside Glenn. Maggie is off at a short distance also digging and they both make eye-contact of uncertainty and feared speculation. Carol, Rick, and Daryl surround a panicked Tyreese who is devastated and lost in translation standing before the burnt corpses of David and the love of his life, Karen. Tyreese, full of grief and anger, protests “Somebody dragged them out here and set them on fire. They killed them and set them on fire!” Rick’s eye is fixed down on the charred figures when suddenly his reflexes make him look up to the victim’s advance towards him and Daryl reacting the same. “You’re a cop.” blurts out Tyreese standing between Rick and a protective Daryl. He continues “You find out who did this and you bring ’em to me. You understand? You bring ’em to me.” Rick says that he knows what it feels like losing a loved one and tries to calm a hulking Tyreese. If Tyreese had been with the rest of the group from season one, he would absolutely know one-on-one the enormous losses of Rick. This time, however, nothing can calm him and he gives a beating to Rick and escapes Daryl’s grasp. Proactive as Rick wants to remain, he pins Tyreese down to the floor and punches him like a punching bag. We see Glenn is beginning to show symptoms so he is placed in quarantine along with Beth and Judith, Sasha, Lizzy and Mica, Dr. S, and Hershel. You can only imagine how Maggie is dealing with her entire family being quarantined.
Tyreese, realizing his sister will not be turned, finally agrees to join Daryl’s group, consisting of Michonne and Bob, to head to West Peachtree Tech’s veterinarian building 50 miles away to retrieve antibiotics–if there are any. Daryl turns on the radio and a voice transmits seeking for survivors to find refuge at his camp. As quickly the sudden man’s voice appeared and disappeared by static, the group’s car gets surrounded by walkers. Since the rear tires are stuck on top of walkers, all fight their way towards the college. Tyreese somehow manages to pound his hammer into every walker closing in on him from every side ( “This is for you Karen!” ) and meets the rest, albeit exhausted. What they don’t know is there are tens of thousands of walkers in their headed direction. Rick is now investigating clues around the grim crime scene; he discovers a bloodied hand mark on the door jamb. “Getting close.”
Carol disregards Rick’s suggestion by going out alone to fix the water hose connecting to the well. She barely survives and we see she needs to lift weights since she had quite the trouble getting the machete from the walker’s skull. Good thing Rick found Carol, but he had to use his left hand to shoot ( right hand is sprained and bandaged up from beating Tyreese ). Carl is quarantined as well and is told to remain there. He packs his belongings including the family portrait Michonne had rescued in season three, and heads out not before telling his dad that if the need comes, he will kill if anyone would turn in quarantine. Hershel sets out into the woods with Carl as bodyguard to collect berries to make his late wife’s tea as a flu reliever because he is compelled to help ( Daryl earlier said there is always running involved outside of the prison when Hershel wanted to go with them to gather antibiotics ). Two walkers meet them and they leave with their collection as Hershel deemed them not as a threat ( One walker had a leg brace. Foreshadowing of Hershel meeting the same fate? NOOOO ). Dr. S coughs and blood is covered on Hershel’s face.
The million dollar question: “Who killed David and Karen?”
If there are any antibiotics left, how much is actually left? Who will decide who gets treatment or not with only a handful of pills? Who exactly is that guy behind the radio so willing to help survivors? Could it be the Governor? Could the Governor have heard the same broadcasting and be on his way there to either indoctrinate them or murder them? Perhaps Rick and the rest may travel there after the prison’s been compromised only to be ambushed? Or Glenn, once he is himself again, will volunteer to scout the area only to be caught and held hostage? If Carol can kill David and Karen, can she kill the others who were with her since season one if they were to start constantly coughing? What will Rick do next? Will Carol be Rick’s one of many new enemies? If so, who’s side will Daryl take? When will Rick step up? I personally prefer the “This is not a democracy!” Rick we saw in season two.
